Better Homes and Gardens Great Patchwork Stars and Stripes - Better Homes and Gardens Creative Quilting Collection Author:Better Homes and Gardens Red, white and blue are forever dear to the hearts of American Quilters, who have used them to make commemmorative and centennial quilts since the country was young. In this book you'll find quilts that set stars and stripes waving over wall or bed. Turn to the Changing Colors and Changing Sets features and you'll see that these quilts are based... more » on wonderful patchwork patterns that you can make in any color you wish. Most are quite easy to re-create; some, like the Country Patches Flag, were commissioned especially for this book, while others, like the Fireworks, are unusual old quilts. For a wonderful salute to America and a new take on quiltmaking tradition, turn to the Expert's Challenge, a contemporary sampler of patriotic blocks. Hurrah!
